Inner-suburban Melbourne in the 1970s: a world of communal living, drugs, music and love. In her acclaimed debut, first published in 1977, Garner captures the fluid relationships of a community of friends. Nothing is harder than learning to love lightly. When Nora falls in love with Javo, she’s caught in the web of his addiction, and her life becomes an intense dance of loving and trying to let go.
